washington, the man with all the answers, cnbc's amman jabbers. what's your assessment of this jobs report? >> it's definitely a strong jobs report, stronger than expected consensus was about 125,000 jobs, we saw 171,000. that was a surprise to the upside. in the morning wall street liked that, the dow futures up on that news, but politically i think the interesting thing here is that all the conspiracy theorists are gone back in their holes today, we haven't heard from all those folks and part of the reason because there's something in here for everybody. the republicans are saying this isn't good enough and the economy is at a standstill. democrats are saying look, we want to build on the progress that we're making. and so it is slow, but steady progress here and i think you have to look at some of the internal numbers here, 500,000 new people joined the labor force in the last month and look at these revisions over the previous months, in august, they revised from 142,000 jobs gained to 192,000 jobs gained. in september revised from 114,000 to 148,000 jobs gained. so big increases in th
news foreign correspondent amman mohyeldin. sorry. amman, before we get into the analysis here, give us an update as far as where things stand in terms of egypt's mediating what could be peace talks in this situation? >> sure. yeah. all eyes have shifted away from gaza about a couple hundred miles south of here and it's all about cairo right now because that's where egyptian intelligence officials and egypt's president is negotiating a truce between israel and the palestinian factions. in the last several hours, egypt's president mohamed morsi has met with both the head of hamas's political office and head of islamic jihad, the two biggest factions in gaza. both of them are saying that they're willing to enter truce with israel on certain conditions. these conditions are that gaza lifts a punishing blockade and siege that has been imposed on gaza since 2006 and allows the free moment movement of people in and out of the territory and supplies and medicine. they want assurances from israel that israel does not carry out any more assassinations on top palestinian leaders like the one we s
was alain al jaria, which in arabic means the ever-flowing spring. it's address, here in amman, jordan was a post office box. it's telephone number, a mobile phone. the principal was a mysterious iraqi by the name of naer jumaili. and a half a billion dollars in iraqi defense funds would eventually find their way into his private account at the housing bank of jordan. the person who knows the most about the case is judge radhi al radhi, who in 2004 was iraq's commissioner of public integrity. it was his job to prosecute official corruption in iraq, and it may have been the most dangerous job in the country. twice tortured and imprisoned under saddam hussein, he received death threats from both the insurgents and from corrupt officials. seven of his people had been killed. >> do you have body guards? >> [speaking arabic ] >> yes. >> how many? >> [speaking arabic ] >> 30. >> lots of people would like to see you dead. >> [speaking arabic ] >> i don't care. that's their problem. >> you don't care? >> i do not care. >> judge radhi was more than happy to walk us through the case. aside from
millimeters instead of five. >> to see the problem firsthand, i rode along with lieutenant craig amman. he has been on the job for 30 years. he will tell you, when he takes an overdose call you the usual suspect is a painkiller. >> what sort of impact have you seen here in seattle? >> well, i think if you pull a group of people together from this community, someone in that group is going to have had a friend, a loved one that has either had difficulty with a prescription drug or potentially died from that. >> amman's unit responds to 45 calls a month about overdoses involving these types of medications. and this is important, it can be difficult to tell whether it's a painkiller or heroin, because they come from the same ingredient and do the same sort of thing to your body. >> aside from needle tracks in the arms, someone who has had an overdose of pain medication like that or heroin, they could look very much the same? >> absolutely. they could be unconscious from a medication that they think is relatively safe for them because instead of getting it on the street, they get it from a pharmaci
houses, be the bomb shelters. this region, it is the civilians as usual suffering. >> and amman, in fact, not only civilians in general, the population, but the children, the fatalities there among the palestinians in gaza, tell us what's happened so far? >> absolutely. it's nightfall in gaza. we've heard the sounds of air strikes behind us. you can hear the explosions and probably hear one now as we hear a fighter jet flying abovep. that's the kind of explosion you will hear systemically throughout the course of the night here in gaza. it sends shock waves of fear to the population of 1.5 million people here. as martin said you don't hear air sirens you don't give people a chance to run to shelters or bunkers. this is the reality of what the people will be living under the next several hours and as long as this operation continues. to put that in the context of how everything here is unfolding, people are afraid. you talked about the children being killed. six of the 23 people that have been killed so far in these air strikes have been children. now a part of that is because gaza is den
. joining me now from gaza is nbc news foreign correspondent amman mulhadeen. i saw you turn around and notice the night skylight up behind you. that was a minute within the cease-fire taking effect. do we know that's rocket fire coming in behind you? >> reporter: it was, in fact. it was an israeli air strike north of where we are. gaza is still very much a war zone atmosphere. although, as you mentioned, it is 9:00 local time so the cease-fire is officially in effect and hearing drones and up to the last minute as you noted but well before that, several minutes before that, a series of explosions as well as a series of rockets coming out of gaza in to southern israel and the question is whether it sticks for the rest of the night. >> obviously, everyone is watching very closely, certainly, in that region and around the world. the people living within gaza, is there a sense of relief or a sense of anticipation for relief coming up knowing that a cease-fire would be brokered and tonight. >> reporter: well, you know, by the time it was getting ready to announce it in cairo, there was

is reporting on negotiations in cairo -- amman, you're in gaza as well. negotiations would be a immediate cessation of hostilities and a two-stage process within two weeks to a month there would be a broader agreement. we've known from the start that israel wants to do something about changing the reality where these rocket attacks do not continue to come from gaza. at the same time where you're standing in gaza there's a lot of criticism about the counterfire that's come from israel and the way they've been targeting areas that are very dense civilian areas. >> that's correct. in fact a lot of people have been describing it as two types. one it's a disproportionate use of force and more importantly a form of collective punishment. both of those are characteristic that international organizations have used to describe the israeli measures in the past. gaza is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. israel claims to be using precision or strategic strikes to hit specific buildings and targets. but the reality is, we have seen time and time again, you may be intending to hit o

in the capital of amman. you have covered jordan many, many years, have been there a couple of times. it is always a place where you feel comfortable, whether it's a sense of stability here how is this unraveling? >> well, this is mostly centering around the economy, and it is important to know that jordan, in fact, experienced its first demonstrations back in december of 2010. people demonstrating wanting to see economic reforms, wanting to see an end to corruption. prize over it is last two years, and the government increased the cost of fuel, of cooking gas, of kerosene, daesel. that is what is really enraging people. cooking gas, for example, we want up more than 50%. government is saying it had to take such moves because of its drastic deficit. people really feel right now that that deficit is because of deposit corruption, because of mismanagement of funds. they want to see this decision reversed. they want on to see the government address the real problem. >> king abdullah, do they want to see him out? is that the solution here? is that what they're calling for? >> it's also i
cairo, in amman, and elsewhere is to see that gaza has been pummelled by the israeli air force. hamas isn't necessarily that popular, a, here in gaza, and also elsewhere. people look beyond the politics and have a natural sort of solidarity with the people of gaza, and certainly that -- the difference is that before, for instance, in cairo when there were flare-ups in the arab -- palestinian-israeli conflict in the past. there would be very small demonstrations in support or solidarity with the palestinians where the ejust a minutian security outnumbered the protesters perhaps 15 or 20 to one. now egyptians can go out into square, other parts of egypt, and demonstrate by the thousands, by the tens of thousands, and, therefore, i think you are now seeing a level of popular support being expressed openly and strongly and freely for the palestinians -- the palestinians, not necessarily hamas, than you ever saw before prior to the arab spring. michael. >> and, yes, in a much more tangible way. ben, great to get your thoughts. stay around. we'll discuss more. >>> we're going to take a quic
